What might be the connection between TSE and the fairies who spirit away shed juvenile teeth and replace them with goodies or currency ?
 
Seem to remember it said that TSE in later years developed a very sweet tooth and a passion for sweeties (don't mean Valerie - or anything more salacious).

During his Harvard years T.S. Eliot took up boxing under the tutorledge

demons.  It paid off -- he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature
in 1948.

I have a question though.  Did that make Eliot the world's first Nobel
prize fighter?
